Host families open their family homes and welcome a person with a disability to live there with them on a full-time basis. Host families are reimbursed to cover the daily support needs and living requirements for the person whom they’ve invited to live in their home.

Host families can also open their homes to a person with disability for a shorter period of time, providing them with a change or a break from their usual home environment.
